Mensagem:  What was the reason  the person wrote the text? From the point of a formal writing , what is missing ?

I fail to see anything wrong about verb TO BE and the past form there, but then, maybe it´s me. Let´s see others have their say.
If you don´t feel like writing such (if that one doesn´t sound nice), you still can change to something like:

Wich could be the reason the author had to write the text?
Wich could be the reason that led the author to write this piece of text?


From a formal point of view, what do you think it´s missing (Or what could be changed/left out)  in the reading/text?
